My self-summary
My life has been defined by absolutely absurd travel experiences: Accidentally crossing the Saudi border and learning the proper technique to tying a keffiyeh from the border guards, working as a shepherd for three months on the South Island of New Zealand, getting lost for three days in the canyons of Utah; I suppose I am pretty normal otherwise.
What I’m doing with my life
I am back at school pursuing a B.S. in Economics following a two-year stint as a marketing analyst.

I've also been working as a community activist and staff member of the De Blasio campaign.
I’m really good at
travelling. I have a photographic memory for places and an uncanny ability to communicate with only my hands.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I could possibly live up to Bill Nye's expectations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out? Preferably somewhere with a great beer selection.

If I'm staying in usually I'll be attempting some ridiculous new recipe. I have recently perfected the chocolate chip cookie, so I do have that going for me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have no problem watching most emotionally charged scenes in movies. "Graves of the Fireflies," I can make it. "Up," heartbreaking but my eyes remain dry. "La Vita è Bella," amazing.

But the one scene I absolutely can not force myself to watch is the shoe murdering scene from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit." I think I have more empathy for that shoe than any other character in a movie.
You should message me if
like me, you found it very difficult writing a summary of your personality on the web and would be much more comfortable with good coffee, maybe food and a good amount of anecdotes to learn about each other, not behind a screen.
